Texas police arrest man for fatal bicycle accident that killed 2

Texas police have arrested a man who they say is responsible for killing two people and injuring a third person. The fatal bicycle accident happened on a recent Saturday morning. A State Trooper indicated that the cyclists were on the proper side of the highway and observing the law at the time of the tragedy. 

According to the report, law enforcement believe that the evidence supports the idea that the 24-year-old driver made a conscious decision to run the bicyclists down. The victims, a 47-year-old woman and a 37-year-old man, were killed at the scene. The driver left without rendering aid or summoning medical care. He then purportedly drove some distance away and forcibly entered a home.

The resident returned and discovered the driver in an agitated state. He apparently talked the man into surrendering to law enforcement officials. He allegedly stated that he suffered from a mental disorder and believed that he was a foreign spy who thought others were out to get him.

The driver is facing several criminal charges, including murder, for the deaths of the two cyclists. The condition of the third rider was not reported. The families of the diseased victims have every right to consult with an attorney in order to file wrongful death lawsuit, while a personal injury claim can be made on behalf of the injured victim. This devastating Texas bicycle accident will forever change the lives of all the families involved, though successful civil claims may help with the financial damages that typically accompany accidents of this magnitude and may also provide a measure of solace that some sense of justice is achieved.
